How to get there:
If you’re coming from Manila, take the North Luzon Expressway. Exit Dau toll gate for you to take your rented vehicle (meeting place is usually at the Clark main gate), otherwise straight to Sta. Ines toll gate. From there, take the MacArthur Hwy to Mabalacat enroute to Bamban and Capas in Tarlac towards north. When you reach the marketplace in Capas, take a left turn to Brgy. Sto. Rosario and negotiate the 22-km. countryside road passing along barangays Aranguren, O’ Donnell, Sta. Lucia, Patling and finally, the last frontier which is Brgy. Sta. Juliana - the gateway to the crater of Mt. Pinatubo. Travel time from Clark to Sta. Juliana takes about an hour and a half. From there, you’ll drive along O’ Donnell river for an hour and then trek on foot for two hours up to the crater (and back the same way). Remember to start your day early at 6:00 in the morning for you to be back late afternoon of the same day.

Why do we have to go and visit Capas, Tarlac? Why do we have to experience the services offered by Pinatubo Spa Town?
Eh bakit nga ba?
Well, it all started with the idea of craving for any evidence that will prove that the so called “LAHAR” is not harmful to human skin but effective on some skin issues.
REDEFENSE! Yan kasi yung naging hatol ng panelist namen sa feasibility study nung wala kaming napakitang any proof na makakapagpatunay na hindi nakakasira ng balat ang lahar. So ayun with all those things, we decided to go there para mapatunayan namen sa kanila na mali ung hatol nila sa “LAHARMONY SPA” namen.
AND THE ADVENTURE STARTS HERE
HERE WE GO GO TARLAC!

From the depth of silence
In the midst of those who transgress
I leave the world of violence
I soar from the staircase of my wakefulness.
But I, who decline to open my eyes
Desire not to see the naked battle
Thy nation’s betrayal and transgression
that bestows the warmth of the world’s aggression.
The clamors of prostitution and immorality
The screams of abusive exploit and adultery
The clangors of drug addiction and corruption
Arouse my juvenile mentality.
Finally, the shaft of thine radiance strikes my sight
The rock of my salvation gives me bright
Thou art that walks with me
My God, who dwells in this world, in this reality.
Thou art the way, the truth and the light
Who grants the thought of gaining victory
Thou art the nation’s strength when in fight
Genuine witness is the Calvary.
The world crucified thee with their evil
Their delirious actions continue to battle
Yet thine goodness healed the broken humanity
Thine caress cures the sickness of the city.
The whole nation not only I
Had seen the triumph of thine divine
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, You are at peak
Worthy of everyone’s worship.
Well, everyone knows na hindi mo kayang iplease lahat ng taong nakapaligid sayo .. Definitely not.. at kapag sinubukan mo naman, mababaliw ka lang. You’ll never find happiness as in HINDI. Pano ka sasaya kung ginagawa mo lang ang isang bagay para matuwa or atleast masatisfy yung gusto ng ibang tao diba.
JUST BE YOURSELF. Gawin mo yung mga bagay na makakapagpasaya sayo and at the same time yung tama at walang inaapakang tao.
JUST BE YOURSELF. Hindi yung gagawin mo lang yung isang bagay kasi nakita mo sa iba, nakikiuso para makasakay sa trip ng barkada.
JUST BE YOURSELF. Wag mong gawin yung mga bagay na sa tingin mo maganda sa paningin ng iba pero hindi mo naman kaya. Panget kaya yun tingnan nagmumukang trying hard.
Simple lang mabuhay ng masaya kung tutuusin. Imulat ang mata at tumawa. Huwag tingnan ang iba dahil hindi mo ito ikagaganda.
JUST BE YOURSELF and smile. :)
